The food? Excellent. You
The food? Excellent. You gotta try the mac-n-cheese. The drinks? If you like whiskey, you're golden! They have a plethora to choose from. I had their version of a Moscow mule and it was good - they make their own ginger beer. Worth a try if this is a drink you like.
The service? It was good...not great. Our waitress wasn't extremely attentive and she couldn't answer a lot of our questions.
Next time I go, I think I'll schedule a tour and then eat/drink. We obviously didn't think through our visit.

Great Gastro Pub. Great food
Great Gastro Pub. Great food and excellent beer and liqour selection. Make sure to check in on foursquare to get happy hour prices on drinks any time of the day. Mac and cheese is amazing. Get it at the very least as your side. You wont regret it.

Great food, but slow and loud
The food was amazing, but there was a very large crowd. It's a pub, a part of Stranahans building, yet the server we rarely found took over 30 minutes to get our drink order and bring a beer. If I go to a place with "pub" in the name, I'm assuming I have the beer in my hand before I can really look at the menu. The food took almost as long on top of that, and I found myself shouting to be heard by the person at my table. I don't know if they don't normally expect that volume of people on a Sunday evening, but I wasn't impressed with the service at all.
The food was amazing, and the drink selection looked great. I would go back for the food, but I'd probably leave if it looked too crowded

If you had a category for
If you had a category for IPA draft beer selection, I would rate it 5 stars. The food was fair. So I bumped up the food score from 2 to 3 stars.

Drinks and Ribs
The Rackhouse Pub is the place to go for great drinks, terrific food, and lively atmosphere. I have had their Stranhattan several times and it is certainly for the lover of the Manhattan. The Ribs were the perfect touch for a good meal.

Exceptional food, service, whiskey!
Thanks Rackhouse for hosting our rowdy party for 30! Food was great, service was great, and the whiskey never stopped flowing :)
This seems to be my annual birthday party spot :) See ya next May!

Food was amazing
Don't be fooled by the slightly offbeat location and the attached distillery: The food was superb. Ribs to die for, great selection of beverages, sides were unique and tasty across the board. Try this place out....You will be glad you did.

Always great, even on Mother's Day
We went here for Mother's Day and absolutely LOVED it. I always love the Rackhouse, but their Mother's Day menu was delicious and creative. The chef even stopped by to check and see how we like the specials.

BIg Group - Big Expectations
I hosted a group of 15 out of town colleagues. We went on the Stranahan's tour and then had dinner at the Rackhouse Pub. I had not been to either one and neither one disappointed. The tour was great. About 45 minutes. Rackhouse had our table ready and were accommodating when our group went from 10 to 15. They had a great beer selection and lots of menu options. My pulled BBQ bison was a treat as was the side of Mac n' Cheese!! So good! And so rich! Another guest had the lobster mac - it seriously could have fed 3-4 people it was so much food. Also really good. The group overall loved the whole experience and found the food all around to be really tasty. My only ding would be initial service-beer took a long time and we had to request water.

Great Pub Fare
We were part of a large group of friends trying the restaurant for the first time. With all hard surfaces and a huge open room, I thought it would be too noisy to talk. Without loud, blaring music I could hear my friends across the table.
Everyone agreed the food was really good, but for those who had it, the mac 'n cheese was a standout. They have a large and varied selection of beers and some interesting cocktails. My ribs were tasty and tender, not outstanding, but I'd be happy to order them again since I can't get to S. Carolina every time I want some ribs. The cornbread muffin accompanying your BBQ is usually just ok, but this one was worth eating all on it's own. Others had the portabella sandwich and thought it was excellent.

Great Pup Food
We went here with a large group following a tour of Stranahan's whiskey distillery. The staff were very friendly and accommodated a change in time due to our tour. The food is GREAT! Mac & cheese in all forms is crazy delicious, all other meals were good too. Noisy and no atmosphere to speak of, but we're a group of friends that goes out every week and we all definitely would go back here again.

Eating Among the Barrels
Rackhouse Pub is attached to the Stranahan's Distillery and although the tours were full on the day we ate, it was still a bit of an experience. The food is good and plentiful, although maybe not the pizza. The rack of ribs is huge and quite good. And of course a taste of Stranahan's whiskey is a must. Overall very fun experience.

Mac-n-cheese from the heavens!!
On Saturday, I threw a bachelorette party for my best friend. We went on the distillery tour and lunch at the Rackhouse afterwards. I knew she would enjoy the tour but the main reason I picked the Rackhouse was for the specialty mac-n-cheese as it is her favorite food. SHE LOVED IT. We all did. The service was great, the drinks were delicious, and the food was amazing. Definitely coming back!

The food, drinks and service
The food, drinks and service was awesome.
I had the Bison Street Tacos, they were the best. Our waiter was around when we needed something, but he didn't hover. Drinks were local products, great selection.

Tucked into Stranahan's whiskey distillery, in an industrial neighborhood is this delightful restaurant.
Their imaginative take on pub food (such as kielbasa empanadas) starts the meal off right. the ribs were delectable, best we've had in Colorado and cocktails and exciting beer list top off a great casual dining experience

Great for groups or just a few friends, this restaurant/pub offers a little bit of everything. The best beer and spirits selection I have ever seen. The service was great and the food menu choices were many.

Cool place, good food, its loud
I like this place. The food is pubby, american. Tasty bison and yummy mac n cheese. Smells like a distillery, duh. And it can get quite loud which fine, just wouldn't recomend it for a romantic dinner. All and all a unique Denver eatery. Fun for out of town guests.

Ton's of people from the GABF, tons of beer on tap which was nice. Food was excellent bar food. Would go back hopefully not during such a busy time. Service was slow but the place was packed.

Good pub food with a little extra
The beauty of the Rackhouse is the location and specifically the proximity to the aroma of roasted grains, coupled with the sweetness of the wort/wash. It makes for an excellent dining experience couple with above average pub food. After all that you can still begin or end your time with a Stranahan's distillery tour.

Didn't know this joint was associated with Stranahans, but the beer selection was fantastic and the food was just as good!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Stranahan's for the whiskey tour prior to eating at the Rackhouse. We thought the tour would be done in ample time to get to dinner but the tour lasted approximately an hour. The wait staff was very accommodating. We still had our table waiting for us when we finished the tour. The waitress was great! I had a pumpkin pie martini (delicious) and the other members of my party ordered beers. They have a great selection to choose from for mixed drinks, beers, and other spirits. The food was amazing as well! My boyfriend and I each had burgers. They were phenomenal (and the oven fries were so tasty)! My friend had the macaroni and cheese dish with the lobster (I had to try that as well). Out of this world!
